    Charioteer - does it need a buff?

    @Wanderjar Thanks again. Got enough of a crew to justify retraining for BiA and mounted Vents. In game comparison says that my aim time is 0.16 seconds worse than with GLD. Since my max bloom and final accuracy are better with Vents, plus all the other slight stat boosts, I'd say it's Vents for the win. Ground out the top gun last night but couldn't face playing the game any more after doing so. Will take it for a spin tonight.
  2. But then WG redefined what broken as fuck can mean. Remember when Obj. 140 was considered OP? We all do. Cause it was 2017. I agree that WG want to make more coin from the new mission set. But I doubt buffing the 279e will achieve that. The same people who were good enough to get their hands on a 260 will pick up the 279e. That’s a tiny percentage of the game’s dwindling player base.

    P.44 Pantera....tier 8 MM

    Played 50 battles in it. Bearing the full brunt of tier 8 MM. 46% WR (59.9% recent WR at the start of the grind). I know it's an insignificant number of battles but that won't stop my rage-tilt kicking in. I'll try to not let that influence what follows. Free XP'ed the top gun and tracks. They can me mounted without upgrading your tracks which is always nice. Mobility is decent with stock tracks and engine; good once fully upgraded. The trend of making Premiums superior to their Tech Tree cousins continues. Progetto 46 gets: 0.5 second faster intra-clip reload; better gun handling; an extra degree of gun depression; better view range. Pantera should be faster with it's significantly better power to weight ratio. But WG, in their infinite wisdom, gave it terrible terrain resistances. So it's a wash mobility wise as far as I can tell when driving alongside Progetto's leaving spawn. Fuck you Wargaming. Fuck you. I'm still on the fence regarding the reloading mechanic. Shooting the last shell puts you in horrific dpm territory without the benefit of just having dished out serious amounts of damage, à la Lorr 40t. But having the option of trading two shots for one with no real penalty is cool. And it's nice not getting caught with no retort late game, pants fully round ankles. I don't know? Definitely one of the best Tech Tree tier 8 MT's. I just need the MM to give me a fucking break....
  4. 47%. That stock tier 8 feeling...

    1. hazzgar


      Stock t8? Have you tried stock t9? 

    2. sohojacques


      Unfortunately yes.

  5. @hazzgarI had hoped for the same but hadn’t bothered to check. Shame.
  6. That perception already exists. And 260 didn’t have to be broken as fuck for people to grind missions for it.
  7. @Deus__Ex__Machina couldn’t agree more.
  8. Yeah I got your point. But whether it’s currently insanely OP or not is moot. As you agree, it’s not underpowered. So, like many, I’m questioning the decision to buff it. And isn’t a major part of the reward of these tanks simply having it it’s epeen expanding presence in randoms? Do status symbols need to be broken OP as well?
  9. As I said elsewhere, if having your UFP penned by tier 10 premium shells warrants a buff, 430u, IS-7, etc, are all currently underpowered. Surely it’s already 430u-like snapshot-ability offsets the need for more armour? Only comrade logic could conclude that this is buff-worthy ahead of the long list of other of neglected tanks.
  10. Yeah I watch a bit of Daki 3 marking it. He kept saying it’s not that strong while holding W and putting in snap shot after snap shot. That Ruski gun handling... WG have gone full retard. Never go full retard.

    Charioteer - does it need a buff?

    That’s ace. Thanks @Wanderjar. Yeah it corner poking/brawling I’m trying to improve on. I’m even considering dropping rammer for vents (with GLD and binos). Or once my crew has BiA replace the GLD with vents and keep the rammer. Will play around with it when the time comes. So much for the fabled 7% of Snap Shot?

    Charioteer - does it need a buff?

    @Wanderjar I’ve always prioritised clutch and off road over smooth ride. Wondering if you think the Charioteer would be a worthy exception? ps second 20-pdr does seem to hit stuff more often then not. But shit alpha is still shit.
  13. It’s like ebony and ivory. They belong together/deserve each other.
  14. Started grinding the Charioteer and rip tier 8 MM again. Not a tier 6 or 7 in sight.

    Charioteer - does it need a buff?

    Seriously, what kind of sadistic, money-grubbing, prick comes up with grinds like this? Still working towards 45k XP for another useless 20-pdr. Watch out you ruski bastards, or I might hit you for 230 hp. Or not, cause 20-pdr.

    Wheeled Tank Mechanics

    Boosts had to go. But why WG removed all the back door exists from elevated shooting positions by sticking giant rocks on every slope...

    Wheeled Tank Mechanics

    Sadly these will be the yolo scouts that pubbies have always dreamed of. Actual scouting is far too difficult for the bulk of the player base. WG’s willingness to completely break their own game needs to be commended. What little structure that exists in random battles is gone as long as one of these borderline untrackable things can yolo run through at 105kph. But the TD and arty players tears...

    Standard B is ... balanced?

    Can we even still speak of balance in a game that doesn’t really have any? Haven’t got the top engine yet. Gets around okay without it. As far as I can tell the autoreloading mechanic, which could easily be OP, is tempered by having tier 7/8 dpm. Nice bit of novelty in the game. I think being able to switch between shells without having to reload the whole clip would be a reasonable buff. 268 pen standard shell is glorious. Definitely need to settle the reticle before flinging the first though.

    Charioteer - does it need a buff?

    @Madner Kami at least the Conway grind looks pretty painless module wise. With ~3.8k dpm on the stock gun you can afford to miss a few.

    Charioteer - does it need a buff?

    I got the 20-pdr Charoiteer blues. And I’m gonna have them for another 95k XP.
  21. I'm not good enough to get accused of hacking all that often. Feels real good when I do. But can someone please explain what an "S/W" is?:

      Ah. Thanks. I was thinking it was something in game.... because I’m stupid.

    3. Assassin7


      yeah theres no arguing with those idiots. 

      just start laughing at them really. 

    4. Tarski


      If it helps, it's easy to misread what he said. Usually "fuck-up" is the noun and "fuck up" is a verb phrase. So you can read him as giving you instructions rather than calling you names. And he appears to think he is giving these instructions to a child!

  22. IS-7, 430u, etc all need buffs as well by that logic.
  23. Is the stock gun the better choice on the Conway? Looks to be on paper. If wotlabs says yes, I can save my free xp for other grinds.

      def the big gun


    3. nemlengyel


      Yzne (FAME) on Twitch is currently playing the Conway with the small gun, for DPM and accuracy reasons.

    4. TheChang


      I played with the 5.5 primarily shooting hesh. You actually get better dpm than the 120mm when penning hesh, which isn't that rare. Both guns are excellent, but HE(sh) ammo best ammo
